The heart of the Mediterranean diet is a lifestyle concept where filling your plate with fruits and vegetables, beans, nuts, fish, olive oil, small amounts of meat, dairy, and red wine (of course) are key!
This antioxidant-rich diet is all about eating fresh, making our favorite Mediterranean salads a perfect accompaniment to maintaining healthy skin.
Indulge in the simplicity of a classic Greek salad. Chopped cucumber’s caffeic acid helps soothe skin irritations and reduce swelling. To your liking, throw in a bit of tomato, kalamata olives, red onion, and Feta cheese!
For the dressing, whisk together 2 tbsp. red wine vinegar, the juice of 1/2 a lemon, 1 tsp. dried oregano, a pinch of kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste with 1/4 c. olive oil and voila!
